’Tis the season to be jolly, especially the potheads. This year has been an exciting roller-coaster ride that began with a bang on January 1 when California finally legalized recreational marijuana. As 2018 draws to a close, it’s high time to start picking presents as memorable as the year.
For your seasoned stoner friends, you will want your holiday gifts to be extra special now that marijuana has gained widespread popularity. To get you started on your holiday shopping, here is the ultimate holiday gift guide for the senior stoner.
Vape Pen and Cartridge
Senior stoners will certainly appreciate gifts that will make their life easier, mess-free, and hassle-free. A practical gift idea when you prioritize convenience and comfort is a vape pen. This sleek and portable device makes it possible for weed enthusiasts to smoke anytime and virtually anywhere.
Unlike traditionally rolled joints, vape pens do not need much time and effort in terms of preparation. Most models just require you to refill the cartridge as soon as the old one runs out. This gift is perfect for potheads who are always on the go. This way, they don’t have to worry about making the mess commonly experienced when rolling a joint.
Last but definitely not the least, vape pens are certainly more discreet than smoking a joint is. Although the vape pen still produces a distinct smell, the emission isn’t as pronounced and as noticeable, as compared a regular joint.
A Cannabis Tour in Jamaica
If you have the budget to splurge and spoil the gift recipient, why not go all-out with an all-expense paid trip to one of the world’s marijuana meccas, Jamaica? The tropical paradise of Jamaica has become synonymous with weed, thanks in part to being the birthplace of a musical legend and marijuana advocate Bob Marley. Jamaica also has close ties to the Rastafarian faith, a religious movement known for its reverence for weed and for incorporating the plant in many important ceremonies.
The trip should include a guided Bob Marley tour around his birthplace, Jamaica’s capital city of Kingston, for intimate glimpses into the artist’s life. Another activity idea is a visit to the newly opened Kaya Farms, the very first marijuana facility in Jamaica that features in-house cafés, spa, and smoking rooms.
Gold Rolling Papers
Rolling papers are an essential item in any avid stoner’s smoking arsenal. But just because this item is basic does not mean your gift has to be. Longtime marijuana users have probably seen and tasted all kinds of rolling papers, so it’s only logical that you wow them with something different.
For the senior stoner, don’t settle for anything less than gold, literal gold. That’s right, rolling papers don’t just come in fancy flavors anymore; they are also available in 24-karat gold.
Search online for specialty stores that offer unique rolling papers, and find the glittering variety. Depending on the recipient’s tastes and lifestyle, you can get them gold rolling paper in regular sizes or blunts and in packs of 6, 12, or more.
Although weed has received increased widespread public acceptance in recent years, the legislation still remains tricky. In the United States, for example, 30 states have legalized marijuana for medical use while 9 allow recreational use, but the drug remains illegal on the federal level.
So far, Canada and Uruguay are the only two countries with a legal-marijuana market nationwide. Volatile legislation and varying drug policies across states and workplaces can land marijuana enthusiasts in some prickly situations if they are not careful.
Help your loved one puff with peace by giving them detox products that they can use in the comforts of their own home. Treatments like the Nexxus Toxin Rid shampoo or a detox drink offer a fast and effective solution for potheads who are about to undergo a drug test in their workplace.
Keep in mind that drug policies vary across countries and workplaces. In fact, some employers still enforce a zero-drug-tolerance policy even if they belong in a state where weed has been legalized. Always keep yourself up-to-date with the latest cannabis news and consider the drug laws in your area when picking a cannabis-related gift for loved ones this season.
